Thank you Mosfets and Nelson Pass
- And thanks to Protos for the hint on the NCC200 ...
I am allready taking a bit closer look at the Nelson Pass F5. It is a relatively simple design and ok for me to be able to manage (I think). I am still contemplating the SKA GB300D kit though. It doesn't seem too difficult to build either.
Based on a short search, the F5 seems like a difficult act to better by any amp design! It seems to match my sonic preference described in my opening post very well ...
Thank you all for your very nice advice!
I will do some thinking and continued research now ...
My candidates in priority as of now:
Nelson Pass F5, SKA (which one?) - or a LM3886 chip amp ...
Will have to investigate into what is involved in taking any of these on.

Regards Aril

Thanks, looks good.
However, at 870 AUD it isn't exactly cheap.

Hello

Yes, but you would need to pay more than few thousand dollar to find a commercial amp who sound as good as a Naksa amps.

Yes, well quality vs price is one hell of an exponential curve...
But the point is there are DIY amps that cost 200USD and apparently sound great. In the same way, there are DIY speakers that cost 5-10 times less than equivalent quality commercial models.
Most DIYers are not looking to spend 870 AUD for an amp.
I was thinking more in the way of 100 USD per channel, me myself.

Suggest you look at the 'Leach Amp' as a start point.
A) http://users.ece.gatech.edu/mleach/lowtim/
B) http://users.ece.gatech.edu/mleach/superamp/
An 'oldish' design but also a VERY good one.
Well respected.. by any yardstick.
